New look Bathurst contenders ready for battle
Nissan Motorsport has rolled out a new Mack Trucks livery for reigning Bathurst podium finishers James Moffat and Taz Douglas ahead of this weekend’s Great Race.
Teams are busy setting up their garages and equipment at Mount Panorama today ahead of tomorrow’s opening practice.
The Mack sponsorship is part of a two-race deal that began at Sandown, where the #99 Altima ran in its regular red, black and white hues.
Moffat and Douglas took a surprise second in last year’s chaotic Bathurst 1000 despite the latter twice finding the fence on a deteriorating surface at Griffins Bend.
The Mack Altima sits alongside Nissan’s 1990 retro livery for Michael Caruso/Dean Fiore and a revised Jack Daniel’s scheme on the Rick Kelly/David Russell car.
The Harvey Norman Supergirls and Plus Fitness-backed Novocastrian Motorsport wildcards also bring fresh looks to the field for Bathurst.
